Nestor Carbonell is about to go psycho…
The 44-year-old Cuban-American actor has joined the cast of A&E’s upcoming series Bates Motel, a prequel to the Alfred Hitchcock horror classic Psycho.
The series is set to examine the twisted relationship between the project’s serial-killer-to-be Norman (Freddie Highmore) and his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga).
Carbonell, who most recently appeared on the CW’s short-lived series Ringer, will play Sheriff Royce Romero, who has something almost sinister about him.
His other notable projects include ABC’s Lost and the Melrose Place reboot, as well as the blockbuster hit The Dark Knight Rises.
